According to Tuesday's Click Orlando News, a protective dog thwarted an intruder's attempt to rob a home in Deltona, Fla., earlier this month, and now the police are hoping that someone with information will come forward.
Thanks to a mastiff mix named "Jager," the man who broke into Christopher Ceasario's home on Slater Drive, left with nothing more than bite wounds on his arm. Ceasario described what happened when he woke up in the early morning hours on May 2:
I heard a loud crash, my dog started going nuts and I jumped up ran out and he had somebody by the right arm shaking,"
Jager let the man go after his guardian came out of his bedroom and the wounded suspect fled from the home.
According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, the suspect has been described as a skinny man of unknown race wearing all black and he had something covering his face; he should have bite marks on his right arm.
Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity is asked to contact Investigator Dan Shivers at 386-860-7030 or Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida, toll-free, at (888) 277-TIPS.
